STAR Timeline

Late September, 2016: Instructions for processing 2017 STAR Student nominations online, the website housing the revised STAR Manual and the Student Nomination Form, as well as a reminder yellow bookmark of important dates and deadlines, are mailed to principals and high school STAR contacts in late September.

The STAR Timeline and bookmark of important dates are mailed to Sponsors and Region Chairs in October.

November 5, 2016 – Last SAT Test Date for 2017 STAR

December 15, 2016 – DEADLINE: Deadline for online completion of STAR Student and STAR Teacher nominations is December 15, 2016.  It is imperative that the counselor review the procedure on the Instruction Sheet to ensure that the STAR Student is not advised of his or her status until the online process is completed and official confirmation is received online. If the school has not heard from the PAGE office regarding a questionable nominee by January 17, the student and teacher submitted are the declared STAR Student and Teacher.

January 17, 2017: PAGE STAR Mails Names of Winners to Sponsors Only

  • The PAGE STAR office mails the names of the high school winners and system winners to local sponsors only.
  • Certificates and list of Region Recognitions are included in this mailing to sponsors.
  • Local sponsors contact high schools to set their local recognitions and announce STAR winners to the news media and community. 
  • Should a school need to announce the winner earlier than scheduled (example: Awards Day), the school should contact the sponsor and arrange details. 
  • January 17 is the earliest possible date because of time necessary to verify, process and print nominations and mail the results to sponsors.

January 27 – February 24, 2017 - Local Recognitions: Local recognitions should be held between January 27 and February 24. (February 24 is the last possible date to hold local recognitions because of lead time needed for region chairs to organize region recognitions.)

February 27 – March 24, 2017 - Region Recognitions: Region recognitions should be held between February 27 and March 24. (March 24 is the last possible date to allow time for region winners to file biographical data required by the judges for the state competition.)

The PAGE STAR program will accept scores from both versions of the SAT. Counselors should follow the College Board's recommendations for comparison of old (prior to March 2016) and new test version scores for the 2017 STAR program. Concordance tables (comparing the scores from both versions of the test) are posted under: SAT Conversion Instructions.

State PAGE STAR Banquet: April 24, 2017 - Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta.
